Things to see at the 4-H Rural Life Center
The 4-H Rural Life Center is rich in history of rural Halifax County at the turn of the 20th Century. Besides the original county home building, built in 1923, there is also the Allen Grove Rosenwald School built in 1922, which was used to educate minorities in the 1920's through the 1950's. There is also the original smokehouse, barn, chicken coop, washroom, pumphouse, and dairy barn. Beside the dairy barn, an antique farm equipment museum has been built. Also, there is an old saw mill used to cut timber which was built in 1929. The whole facility is over 345 acres and is bordered by Little Quankey Creek.
